Crave by Monica Murphy is the story of billionaire playboy Archer, who definitely isn't looking to settle down, and his best friend's sister Ivy. Ivy is absolutely off limits. But they can't seem to stay away from each other. Archer hires Ivy as the interior decorator for his soon-to-open hotel. This certainly doesn't help matters.
Crave is a great start to a new series. I loved both the characters. Archer was cocky and arrogant - everything you'd expect from this trope - but he had a real soft spot for Ivy that made me swoon. Ivy was outspoken and witty, I just loved her. And Ivy and Archer were great together - their chemistry never felt forced or fake.
If you love the best friend's little sister trope, I definitely recommend picking up Crave by Monica Murphy. But in general, fans of contemporary romance will love Crave. With great characters, great sex scenes, and a fun plot, it definitely hooked me. Crave is a fast read that left me excited for the next book in Monica Murphy's Billionaire Bachelors Club series.
